Q/A with James Almodoval, Field Engineer
Employee of the Month: January 2018

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
If I were able to go anywhere on the planet, it would have to be Mykonos, Greece. The architecture, culture, and scenery is something I’ve recently come to admire.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I would love to be a part of a 90’s R&B group, kind of like Boyz II Men or New Edition with coordinated dances and melodies. I’m an old soul in a new school body.

Describe your perfect Saturday?
My perfect Saturday would definitely include a brunch to start my day after being able to sleep in (weekends I’m usually awake by 8am). Then afterwards, take my dog Sasha (Siberian Husky) to the beach where she can get rid of all that pinned up energy from being in the house. From there Sasha, my girlfriend, and myself would head over to Starbucks in which we all get cappuccino wasted. Then, to end the evening, a dinner cruise around the statue of liberty and up the Hudson. To my surprise, the boat is actually a modern day DeLorean in which we go back to the Y2K era and party like its 1999.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
I have always been one to dance. I would love to learn how to play an instrument of some sort. No the fourth grade mandated recorder does not count in my book. Although I can play a quality Mary had a Little Lamb.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
Best part about working at HEA will have to be the small atmosphere.I constantly get asked why I have not shipped out with the USCG Third Asst. Engineer license. I like to use the analogy of a small fish in a small pond when referring to my role here at HEA. Yes, we are small. It’s the close knit relationships that I can cultivate with my superiors that make it worth the while, as opposed to a bigger company.

Q/A with Eric Turcotte, Field Engineer
Employee of the Month: December 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
I would go on a backpacking trip in Glacier National Park in Montana.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I'm actually able to laugh when I’m relaxed enough.

Describe your perfect Saturday?
My perfect Saturday is when I have enough free time left after cleaning my house to go on a mountain bike ride.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
I would like to learn how to do rock climbing.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
What I like best about working at HEA is that I have a lot of latitude to work autonomously and manage my own work.

Q/A with CJ Peter, Project Engineer
Employee of the Month: December 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
Maldives. It’s on my list for 2019.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I have a very British sense of humor. I don't get offended by anything..

Describe your perfect Saturday?
Waking up late, drinking coffee and cooking breakfast at home, working on my cottage, an early dinner and a Meryl Streep movie.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
To learn professional dancing.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
The project scope exposure, management tools and varied clientele is very helpful in my development. I also like the work culture here.

Q/A with Tom Conn, Project Engineer
Employee of the Month: November 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The best mountain biking in the world!

What is something about you that would surprise people?
How much I absolutely abhor mayonnaise and hard-boiled eggs. Most people don’t have the capacity to loathe anything as much as I loathe either of these.

Describe your perfect Saturday?
Starting the day super early, riding my mountain bike on the trails at Graham Hills in Pleasantville, New York before anyone else. Then heading back to the city, completely avoiding traffic while doing so, in time to grab a massive hero from Alleva dairy in Little Italy for lunch (exactly what I’m craving right now). Then popping back into Brooklyn to pick up my lovely girlfriend Michelle and head out on a nice long bike ride around Brooklyn, ending up at one of our favorite outdoor spots (we have a few) for dinner and drinks. Then, we’ll head home for a planned viewing of The Big Lebowski, with a White Russian on the side, and Michelle won’t roll her eyes at all. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that on my perfect Saturday, my timesheet was totally done the day before, for sure.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
I’d like to learn to whistle really loudly, whether or not it’s the method that involves putting your fingers in your mouth. With the advent of Uber/Lyft/etc. making it much less difficult/necessary to hail a cab, it’s a dying art that lots of New Yorkers used to be really good at.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
It’s definitely the constant worry of not being able to find a bathroom key when it’s needed the most, which keeps me on my toes. KIDDING – it’s the people. I love how close-knit HEA is, how easy everyone is to talk to and how everyone consults each other when they are stuck on something. It’s also great that a few of our engineers are VERY familiar with Big Lebowski lines.

Employee of the Month: November 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
For me a perfect vacation would be a hunting trip in the Rocky Mountains.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I train and compete in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which is a form of grappling/wrestling.

Describe your perfect Saturday?
Waking up and enjoying the morning with my wife & children, getting a midday workout in and then going bow hunting in the afternoon.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
Play the guitar.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
I like the open dialogue and comradery between management and other employees, especially when working with employees from other areas to share ideas.

I’ve always been interested in music. Never really dove into it, but I’d like to learn to play the guitar.

I’d say the people I get to learn from and interact with are the most rewarding part of this job.

Q/A with Joseph Kennedy, Field Engineer II
Employee of the Month: August 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
Scotland/Ireland. My wife would love to go there. I’ve been to northern Scotland (Aberdeen) for oilfield work and the little time I got to spend exploring it was a very interesting place to be.

What is something about you that would surprise people?
I study martial arts; specifically Northern Shaolin Kung Fu.

Describe your perfect Saturday.
Waking up to my awesome kids and spending some time with them before going to kung fu class, and then spending the day with my family hopefully doing fun activities! Going to the park, having a fire at night, listening to my wife play guitar while our children run around outside.

What is something you would like to learn to do?
Play any instrument so I can play with my wife.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
The talented and friendly people at HEA make the company what it is. I enjoy meeting new, different people and interacting with different clients keeps it interesting for me. My co-workers at HEA is what I like best though.

Q/A with Tucker Hubbell, Field Engineer II
Employee of the Month: July 2017

If you could vacation anywhere on the planet, where would you go?
I would vacation in New Zealand.  It is so far away from everything else geographically, I want to see that part of the world.  I also want to see the landscape that they used to film the Lord of the Rings movies.  Finally, you can snowboard and surf in the same day there!

What is something about you that would surprise people?
At HEA, it is probably the fact that I am from Minnesota.  Most of the company seems to be from New York, so it is funny to me to hear people talk about the Giants and Pats in their thick, East-Coast accents. (I do not have a Minnesota accent, by the way.)

Describe your perfect Saturday?
In college I played football, so game days were the best.  If I could have snuck a round of golf in there somewhere it would have been perfect!

What is something you would like to learn to do?
My dad was a pilot in the Navy, and still flies commercially.  I want to get my pilot’s license.

What do you like best about working at HEA?
I like that I can have a beer with the CEO!
